For my birthday back in February I received one of the Nars Audacious lipsticks in the shade Kelly, I only own 1 other Nars lipstick in the shade Mitzi which I bought around 6 years ago, I also have a couple of the Nars lip pencils. I wore Kelly recently and realised that I hadn't ever written a post on it, and after I wrote my "what I got for my birthday" post (see that post here) so many of you were interested in my thoughts, so I thought it was time I shared them with you.
The packaging of the lipstick is plain black with a matte metal finish and the Nars logo in a satin finish, the lipstick has a magnetic closure which for me is amazing, I adore lipsticks with a magnetic closure, is it me or is there something really satisfying about that "click"?
The Nars Audacious lipsticks come in 40 shades which is a brilliant shade range and there are some stunning shades, all the shades have women's names and are named after women who have inspired Francois Nars over the years. As I said I have the shade Kelly, described as coral hibiscus, it is a bright coral/red with warm undertones and has a satin finish. The lipstick has incredible pigmentation and is opaque in one swipe, it doesn't feel drying at all on the lips and doesn't bleed or feather.
The shape of the lipstick makes it easy to apply, the tip is pointed meaning I can get a precise application and I love that it has the Nars logo embossed into the lipstick too, I like little touches like that on makeup products. The lipstick applies well and feels nice on the lips, the colour payoff is incredible as is the wear time for a satin finish lipstick. I get around 7 hours wear time from the lipstick which for a satin finish I think is brilliant. Kelly is as described as coral hibiscus, I wouldn't describe it as a true coral, it's more a bright coral/red. Kelly is a lovely colour and one I would wear all year round, usually I wear a lot of true coral lip colours during the spring/summer but I will definitely wear Kelly all year round, I feel it will look nice in autumn/winter as a nice bright lip during the colder months.

The audacious lipsticks aren't the cheapest of lipsticks at £24 each but if you don't mind paying that, I would definitely say to give them a try, there are some incredible shades and with so many shades available there really is a shade to suit everyone, there are some beautiful nudes, pinks and reds that look as if they'd be right up my street!
You can find the Nars Audacious Lipsticks on a number of different websites including John Lewis, House Of Fraser, Feel Unique and ASOS all for £24 with Feel Unique offering free delivery.
